About this Item

17" x 17", four 8.5 x 11 books. black cloth with paper label. three 28 pages, one at 20 pages. Edition limited to 75 signed and numbered copies, including five artist proofs, with only 25 copies for sale. This innovative interdisciplinary work intersects at the pinnacle of creative writing, graphic design, book art, and performance. This is a poem for three voices, meant to be read by three people at once. In addition to the poem, the author has written an afterword articulating the evolution of his polyphonic poetry, documenting for the reader a history of this definitive edition. The work is made to be performed, and his essay concludes, "The printed text should be as fine as it can be, but it should never be the final incarnation. A book must be a place where things begin." The display type was set by hand, and the text was printed by the Center's Master Printer, Barbara Henry at their Jane Mead Timken Printshop in three separate colors in Monotype Dante by, with composition by the Bixler Foundry in Skaneateles, NY.The text was then hand word and line spaced at the Center by Ms. Henry to Robert Bringhurst's exacting specifications. Mr. Bringhurst created the typographic design for the book, as well as the text. Hedi Kyle designed the innovative binding structure specifically for New World Suite Number Three. When opened, each volume within the book forms its own lectern. The poetry for each voice has been bound in heavy blue cardstock, while the afterword was done in burnt orange. When closed, the book has a stunning three dimensional architectural presence. It was produced at the Center for Book Arts under the supervision of Master Binder, Mirah von Wicht, who studied traditional bookbinding in Germany, book conservation in the USA, and worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and by artists Jennifer Bantz Biddle, Ana Cordeiro, Nancy Loeber and Linda Trimbath.
